Olympus has announced that it will present its Discovery Series neuroscience lectures again this year.
The presentations provide an opportunity during the Society for Neuroscience annual meeting for researchers to study with those developing approaches to specific neuroscience applications, along with scientists offering introductions to advanced microscopy tools and techniques.
Three one-hour presentations are planned during the meeting.
On 18 October at 14:00, Xiangmin Xu, assistant professor of the departments of anatomy and neurobiology and biomedical engineering at California University in Irvine, will be in Olympus Booth 1,031.
He will discuss the high resolution and fast functional mapping of cortical circuitry through a combination of voltage-sensitive dye imaging and laser scanning photo stimulation.
On 19 October at 14:00, Ji-Xin Cheng, associate professor of biomedical engineering and associate professor of chemistry at Purdue University's Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering, will be in Olympus Booth 1,031, speaking about multiphoton microscopy and coherent anti-stokes raman scattering (CARS) microscopy in a multi-modal system.
On 20 October at 11:00, Prof Kimberly Wicklund of Olympus America and the Scientific Equipment Group will be in Olympus Booth 1,031.
She will cover the topic of simplifying live cell imaging.
